Basic MSI - 2008 x64 right-click run as administrator


InstallShield 2012 Basic MSI
2008 x64 Server

Is there a setting that allows the Basic MSI package to run as administrator (as a right-click option)?

Modifying the registry before hand is not a solution.

Thank you.

If you want to do it using pure msi package(.msi), I guess you can't.

You can do that using Setup.exe.

1. In [Relase] view,select your existed release entry.

2. [Setup.exe]tab in right panel, Change [Require Execution Level] to [Administator]

3. Build the release. Your Setup.exe will have shield icon.
And it will need Administrator privilege.
